Just a 'Bit' Bored
After spending lots of time around Browning machine guns and air
planes, "Tracer," the tiny pup mascot at the aerial gunnery school at
Harlingen, Texas, find the view from his ammunition box seat pretty
boring. Student Raymond F, Nannen, of Houston, pauses for a few
momenta to play with the popular pup before going up for some

For immediate purposes, though,
Brazil's bound to be our closest affiliate.

terizes Brazil, to the eastward into
the Atlantic in the direction of
Africa's westward bulge toward it,
from the opposite point of the com
pass. Naturally Brazil's bulge will
be invaluable to us, as a base for
operations against widely-adver
tised Dakar, at the African bulge's
extremity, in the event of its Axis
occupation, with the connivance of
Vichy, since it's a Vichy possession.
Bulge To Be Familiar
It behooves us, then, to devote
a little especial attention to Brazil,
and to its bulge in particular. It's
not improbable that we'll presently
find ourselves as familiar with that
bulge as we are with Michigan's
bulge into the Great Lakes or Flor

It shouldn't be forgotten that
Brazil isn't Spanish, like all the
rest of Latin America- It's Portu
guese. ; -
Between the Spanish and Por
tugese I never could see any Con
siderable difference, after several
years residence in their respective
midsts. In their languages they
differ slightly in a few of their
rival spellings. Illustratively, if a
Spaniard wants to employ the
equivalent of our word for "'mis
ter," he spells it senor only, over
the "n" he puts a little accent
mark called a "tilde," which I
can't produce because it isn't in
cluded in any English type face-
Anyway, it makes senor, plus the
tilde, sound like "sane" and "yore"
A Portuguese gets that same iden
tical effect by spelling the title
senhor, with no tilde.
Yet Spaniards and Portuguese
say they're as distinct breeds, as
they both are from Anglo-Saxons,
and insist that they can't under
stand one another.
It's bunk, of course, but youll

The Same City
Yet youll have seen that same
identical burg (everlastingly is dis

Recife, pronounced Ray-ee-fay and
accented on the second syllable.
The mixture's confusing. It's
characteristic of Brazil, though.
To the northward up the coast a
bit (back from the point of the
Brazilian bulge but an important
port at the Amazon's mouth,
where we're sure to be mightily
busy) is Para, pronounced as in
